a bit about Dan

What are you working on these days?

As a lover of house music, I work on a houseboat bar as a bartender. It is an afterparty place, so I am also working on my vampire lifestyle.

What drives you mad these days?

Stupidity of some people – as a bartender I meet many people. My mom… sometimes 🙂

What makes you happy?

Good food… a lot of good food. My friends and chilling out with them.

When was the last time you cried?

Last Wednesday when cutting an onion.

What’s your latest musical obsession?

The Cure, The Doors, Santigold, Petshop boys, Dr Kucho, Watermatt.

What was the last movie you watched? Was it any good?

Spun – it was super mega good!

When it’s time for a new wardrobe, where do you go?

Second-hand and vintage shops. I have my favourite places where I am capable to spend hours and hours.

What’s your go-to café in Prague?

Boudoir U Sta rán. Which means something like Boudoir at 100 mornings. La Café Bohéme – they have the best coffee from their own roaster.

What’s your favorite street or neighborhood to wander through?

Vinohrady which actually means Vineyards but is informally called Gay-yards 🙂

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in Prague but never actually do?

Going outdoors. There are too many perfect places to have a drink in the sun in Prague. I never manage to go to all of them.

If it’s been raining outside for days and you’re sick of staying in – where would you go?

I would go to my friends’ place to watch a movie.

What’s that place in Prague you feel like only you know about?

I have my favourite bench in the Riegrovy sady park. Many people go there but this particular bench is very special for me. I fell in love at this very spot to my first love.

If tomorrow was your last day in Prague before you left for good, how and where would you spend it?

I would take my friends and I would get wasted in one of the bars. Most probably in the NoD bar.

Given the choice, mayor of which neighborhood would you be?

Prague 1 – the Old Town.

What’s the spot in Prague you wouldn’t be caught dead in?

Retro Hall Music Bar. It is for kids (teenage kids). Too many spangles for me.

You’ve just received the best news ever. Where would you go to celebrate and with whom?

Buddha Bar with my boyfriend.

What’s the thing you love doing that isn’t work, relationship or family related?

Fitness club. I love swimming as well. And mushrooming – in the Czech Republic we collect mushrooms in the forest and we eat them. You can make super delicious stuff with mushrooms!

When you feel like a night out, what’s your go-to place and why?

Termix, Termax, Friends, Escape, (Alcatraz :)) – all the gay clubs
